If you're reading this blog, odds are that you are either a personal friend of mine, or someone who is interested in electric car conversions. Either way, I hope the blog is both informative and motivational to you and whoever you may share it with. This blog will follow my progress in the conversion of my 2002 Honda S2000, and although it may be unachievable, I am anticipating a completion date of about 6 months. As time passes through the next 2 weeks - month, I will address multiple aspects and components of the electric car, ranging from the motor choice, to the BMS (Battery Managment System). It will surely be a tough, and interesting (to say the least) journey from internal combustion gas guzzler, to speedy electric sports car, but I am itching to get started.
Anyway, about me; I'll try to be relatively terse here. I am a 16 year old attending Spruce Creek High School, enrolled in the IB program. I don't have very much of a background with cars, since this electric car will be my first. I've never changed oil, or replaced a tire; the most I've ever done is fill the water for the windshield wipers. That said, I am fairly practical by nature, and if I devote myself to something, I can generally complete it within a couple of months. My main motivation in life is in the pursuit of scientific knowledge, and at school, I have more friends than I can count on 2 hands, that are encouraging and interested in the project.
One last thing I will address in this post; what is the point of creating an electric car?
